The Trial of Jesus: His Blood Be On Us

The Trial of Jesus: His Blood Be On Us


After the Savior was judged by Pontius Pilate
within the confines of the palace of Herod, Pilate again brought Jesus before the Jewish leaders. Here Pilate exclaimed that he had found no
fault with Jesus and sought to release him because of His innocence, symbolically washing
his hands of the matter. The most vocal of the crowd would hear nothing
of Pilate’s verdict of innocence for the Lord. The Gospel of Matthew records
the profound interchange: “When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing,
but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed
his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood
of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His
blood be on us, and on our children.” Here among the group were many of the priests
of the temple, including the high priest himself who well understood the concept of a blood
atonement. The word atone, or khapper in Hebrew means
to cover, blot out, expiate, condone or cancel. For the priests, this term of atonement or covering also had a literal application during temple sacrifices. Depending on the type of sacrifice
that the priest was offering, a portion of the blood of the animal
was dabbed upon the horns of the altar, splashed against the sides, or poured out at the base. On the Day of Atonement (the holiest day of
the year), the High priest would in addition dab blood on the horns of the altar of incense,
and sprinkle blood before the veil. The High Priest would also enter the Holy
of Holies and with blood from the sacrifice sprinkle it seven times upon
the Ark of the Covenant. This “covering” with blood of the various pieces of furniture within the Tabernacle and later temples represented that the blood of the sacrifice covered,
or made atonement for the sins of all Israel. Because of these rituals, the act of covering
with blood, and atonement were almost interchangeable for the Israelite people. How ironic that here the people ask that Christ’s
blood be upon them. Of course, the Jewish leaders did not mean
to imply that Jesus’ blood would atone for them, or cover them, but the symbolism of
the wording they choose still vividly remains. How true their request would be that the blood
of the Lamb of God, who would be slain for their sins, would come upon them or cover
them; for Christ did suffer for all, even His accusers. Even more powerful is the statement that Christ’s
blood be upon their children, for all, both Jew and Gentile, are to be grafted into the
lineage of Abraham, thus becoming children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Each of us, in essence, are part of the crowd
who requested that Jesus’ blood cover them. As sinners we each have the need of having
our sins blotted out, or covered over to be remembered no more by God. Truly, it is by His blood coming upon us that
we are forgiven. How prophetic the words of these wicked men,
who in attempting to place blame on their children, actually helped in providing the
means of salvation to their children through the blood of the Lamb of God. The Lamb, that on their behalf, and by their
request, was slain!

  1. Jealousy! The Pharisees couldn't see somebody else to supercede them, because they controlled the people by preaching ( but never really practicing). I wish we could see their faces when they landed where they landed for eternity!

  2. This is an excellent video, but the explanation borders on Eisegesis rather then Exegesis. A more accurate description would be that Not realizing it, they were not asking for the blood of Jesus to cover them, which would have been anathema to a Jew considering that it would imply Human sacrifice. What they were indicating however was that they were indeed responsible for His death, thereby fulfilling the words of Isaiah 53. It's as if they were saying, 'Here is our Lamb for the sacrifice. We brought it and are taking responsibility for it's death, so please accept it'.

  3. The movie scenes of Jesus, Pilate, the crowd, and Jesus on the cross were produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  4. Jesus the most humble person that walks the earth and the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.

  5. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you for shedding your blood, on the Cross, so that we may be forgiven. Very humbling video. Thank you for posting it.

  6. The bible does not say we become children of Jacob or Abraham. To be specific the gentiles are grafted into the tree with the Jews, but it makes no specific mention of what body that tree is. We are all in the body of Christ and in the church. But when you start saying things like we are children of Abraham and Jacob, you are making up doctrine. I can't say whether it is true or false. One should probably just teach the scriptures.

  7. God bless you due the work you are doing in this channel, I've been reading the gospel and watching the videos, consequently learning a lot. Thanks from Brazil ! 🙂

  8. How would their asking for the blood to be upon their children change anything since Jesus sacrifice was already meant for the Hebrews and only later extended to the rest of the world? If it wasn't meant for the Hebrews…then who was it for originally?

  9. I absolutely loved watching your videos every week that went along with the Come Follow Me curriculum. Every week I watch for a knew one and have been so sad that there hasn't been any. I felt like I learned a lot and got way more out of them than anything else. They made our family lessons together so much more meaningful. Is there a reason you stopped making them and do you plan on doing any more in the future?

    Look not upon me, that I am swarthy, That the sun hath tanned me; My mother’s sons were incensed against me, They made me keeper of the vineyards; But mine own vineyard have I not kept.’

    וְלַמַּלְשִׁינִים אַל תְּהִי תִקְוָה. וְכָל הָרִשְׁעָה כְּרֶגַע תּאבֵד. וְכָל אויְבֵי עַמְּךָ מְהֵרָה יִכָּרֵתוּ. וְהַזֵדִים מְהֵרָה תְעַקֵּר וּתְשַׁבֵּר וּתְמַגֵּר וְתַכְנִיעַ בִּמְהֵרָה בְיָמֵינוּ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה', שׁובֵר אויְבִים וּמַכְנִיעַ זֵדִים:
    And for slanderers may there be no hope; and may all wickedness be destroyed instantly and may all Your enemies be cut down quickly. Quickly uproot, smash, and cast down the arrogant sinners and humble them quickly in our days. Blessed are You, O Lord, Who breaks enemies and humbles arrogant sinners. (ס)
